(with Application to Radiology) Authors: Premysl Zaskodny, Petr Procházka Publisher: Publishing House CURRICULUM ISBN 978-80-87894-02-6 The reviewers of 2nd Edition: Daniele Margarone Jana Skrabankova Brief SummaryThe book is the 2nd Edition of Survey of Principles of Theoretical Physics (with Application to Radiology) and was created to reflect recent level of knowledge in the field of physics. It is a useful tool for students of non-physics study programs. The usefulness of the work
in view of reviewers of the 2^{nd} English editionThe book “Survey of Principles of Theoretical Physics (with application to radiology)” by P. Zaskodny and P. Prochazka represents an original approach to modern physics. It deals with theoretical physics (statistical and non-statistical) as well as nuclear physics and its application in radiology. The authors are able to explain in a simple way the basic principles of physics in various fields being at the same time accurate and systematic. Thus the book is addressed to a wide range of readers applying basic principle of physics in different fields, e.g. radiobiology and medicine. In particular Section C “Ionizing radiation and its applications in radiology” can be very useful for understanding the basic principle of various technologies currently used in radiology. Furthermore the book can be adopted by students of technical universities and can also be of interest to readers who want to understand the basic principles of physics (statistical physics, electromagnetism, classical and quantum mechanics, theory of relativity and nuclear physics). In conclusion the book represents a high quality work with the main goal of summarizing various areas of physics in a concise way but at the same time comprehensive and accurate, which makes it suitable for a wide range of readers. The book “Survey of Principles of Theoretical Physics (with application to radiology)” by P. Zaskodny and P. Prochazka represents special approaches to teaching of physics in the different levels of various schools, faculties and technical universities. The monograph contains a pedagogical introduction to some parts of theoretical physics, which are important for the development of radiology. The authors used the theory of the conceptual curriculum as a communicable scientific system. Their book can be inspiring for future didactic researches not only in radiology, but also in teaching science. The book will be surely interesting for students and teachers of physics and other scientific disciplines. The book presents a special asset to the area of radiological physics and fulfills the empty field of general contributions to the processing of similar themes. © CURRICULUM 2014.
